  3. Brazil The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - Cowboys in Glória

      Cowboys: Every Friday, late in the afternoon, local cowboys sauntered into town on their horses, driving a small herd of cattle in front of them. In Brazil, the cowboys were vaqueiros, but in Glória, they were usually called gauchos.   The gauchos who drove their cattle past our house on a dusty dirt road wore leather chaps and leather jackets.

The meat from one cow covered up to two tables altogether. The meat was frozen and used throughout the year. With temperatures dropping as low as -40 C, there wasn't really a need for freezers. Gotta love the man's meat pride.
